An Updated Letter From David - 24/06/2020
Dear Valued Customer and friends,
I begin with my most important message, that I trust you are all keeping alert, safe and well.
Our family has increased quite considerably since my last news letter, with the addition of many Shearing's passengers requesting information about our tours, and we, as I am sure you are, are delighted to welcome them. We trust that they will enjoy the holidays and service that we provide.
Tuesday brought some significant changes to our operations, with announcements that Hotels, Restaurant and bars will re-open on the 4th July 2020, which is great news, and we can all start planning for that well earned break, or change of scenery. Although we are ready to start our tours and day trips, with limited spaced seating on the coaches, and other precautionary actions, many hotels are not in a position to operate until August.
Therefore, sadly, many July holidays will be cancelled, and you will be contacted by our staff in due course.
Most of you will be aware that my staff have been available everyday since the lockdown, we never closed, and our Baxters Lane office has been extremely busy, as bookings have started to increase quite dramatically for our tours from August. We do intend increasing our staff, and opening our St Helens Town Centre office, this will be from the 1st July 2020. Please check opening times, and restrictions. Our Baxters Lane Head Office, will also be open for customers (with restrictions) and will welcome you from the 1st July. We would ask that anyone visiting Baxters Lane by car to use the Coach Park at the rear of our building for parking, there is plenty of room.
As I mentioned in my last news letter, Carol is busy preparing our 2021 brochure, and this continues, many of our 2021 holidays are already on the website, and can be booked now. You don't have to wait till 2021 for your holiday, as with the cooperation of some of your favourite Hotels, we will commence our tours in July, with :
These tours will run with restricted numbers, and will all offer door step pick ups. These will be the only tours operating in July, so you will need to book early, if you wish to join us. All other tours for July will be cancelled. If you wish to transfer to any of these from a cancelled July Tour, please contact our staff, but we ask for your patience, the phones are extremely busy.
For Our Day Excursion Customers (St. Helens & Warrington Pick Ups Only) - we are updating the website with which trips will be running, in July - if it is showing on the website we are expecting to run the trip, you won't be able to book online for a few days as we work the new seating plans out, but feel free to call to book.
It is sad that many of our holidays have had to be cancelled, but I can tell you the atmosphere in our office has completely changed now that passengers expectations have concentrated on bookings, instead of cancellations.
I must take this opportunity to again thank you for your continued support. It has been a very difficult period for our operations, and it still is, but with your enthusiasm and expectation for holidays, and the relaxation of the many restrictions, I am confident that we will not only look forward to our holidays, but we will again enjoy one another's company, and long may it continue.
Its always a feeling of great delight to convey good news, and I trust that my next news letter, at the end of July, will have even more for most of you. Until then
Keep Safe and Keep Well,
God Bless and Best Wishes,
